One of the biggest traps that you can fall into when you are on a weight loss journey is to worry too much about how far you have to go.
What about focusing on how far you’ve come?
Brian touched on this a little on Monday when he shared his Wii Fit weight chart. I’ve been keeping a weight graph since 2003. Every week (or, at times, once a month), I log my weight into an Excel spreadsheet and I can see exactly how far I’ve come.
The steep incline was when I was pregnant with Emma. The little, steady incline around Week 209 was when I decided I could do it on my own. I couldn’t, LOL!
Look at that decline! I did that. Noone made me. It was just something that I decided within myself that I needed to do. Some may think “Gee, that took her a long time…” but who cares? I did that. That’s what matters.
The next time you feel discouraged and want to quit because you have “so far to go”, take a moment to remind yourself of what you’ve done.
So tell me…how far have YOU come? What have you accomplished so far?
